I'd rather visit some redwoods, or a waterfall than a fancy, overblown church.  My dad took me to Yosemite when I was 6 or 7 ; I didn't care much for camping in a tent, but the waterfalls were breathtaking.  When I was on the road in 1959 we had a chance to grab a bus from Buffalo to Niagara Falls...that was like standing in the middle of a never-ending earthquake....scared me.But I stood at the edge of the platform and just stared at the tons of water pouring over the edge.

Patricia, did you mark that bible? Whoever, thanks a trillion! I am reposting on Facebook. 

I like the bus ride through a city as well. I had done that in E. Berlin before the wall came down, and it was quite an experience  

I have gone into great cathedrals and temples of ancient Greece and Turkey and Crete, as well as the usual ones in western Europe. I try to imagine the people who did the carvings and their home lives. I often asked people to show me where the builders and carvers lived and in some cases I was able to find their homes. The craftspeople were hard working, talented in their fields, dedicated, faithful in most instances. Primitive lifestyles in comparison with the edifices they created. I've also stood in grand places in Mexico and Asia.

I stood in awe of what humans can do if they have inspiration.  The talents of Homo sapiens shine through the different beliefs in order to get to their supreme talents. Do you think an atheist or secularist can see beyond the usual to create the unusual?  

I think so.

Patricia, I think a lot of churches were built to intimidate the common people.  I've seen comments, even in A/N, by people who have gone on "historical" tours of Europe, and the powerful emotions they felt when entering the larger cathedrals.

They all look creepy to me.

You'd have to shake a loooong time, Randall! But I feel the same.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 8, 2015 at 8:19am

Yes, Spud, things like that really gripe me. I want to grab hold of those idiots (the walk outers) and shake sense into them. Or just punch them.

French toast this morning! Yum. Hated "losing" an hour (DST).

Spud, I saw the headline for that incident on  Daily Kos....and it just boggled what's left of my mind.  How do people manage to grow up in this country without understanding what "multicultural" means?

Would they have walked out if a Native American had performed a cleansing ritual?

A brouhaha has developed in the Idaho State House.  Three members walked out when a Hindu Prayer was going to be said.

One of the walk-outs said she protested the prayer because she believed the United States is a Christian nation and that Hinduism is a "false faith with false gods."

Good afternoon! It is sunny! I've been shopping and cleaning and in between I'm thinking on my roof garden. The first of six big containers arrived today - a metre x 50 cm. I'll fill them with earth from the old containers, compost and whatever I can find - slow work because of a bad back. Then I'll replant some surviving perennials and  the rest is for veg and herbs.

Have a nice day! I hope spring comes to you very soon.

Good morning! At least that's what it is when I usually hop on the computer--after breakfast and a mile walk. Nothing special planned for the day. Hope yours is sunny.

Felaine, on one of the sites you pointed to, I read that there was a warning label on the cup, but it was too small, and they've now made it larger.

However, they don't sound like a nice company at all.  I used to buy their cheapest burger once in a great while, but no more.
